  1. Hello! Thank you so much for all your awesome work figuring out these awesome devices. I just bought myself a Zidoo Z9X and started playing around with Home Theater 4. I really like it a lot. My only problem with it is that so many of my movies show up in the UNMATCHED section and when I try to manually scrape them, it only let’s me scrape from the TV databases. It doesn’t see the files as Movies but TV shows. My collection is all movies. I’ve looked around your site and it seems like you’ve done a lot of work into this but I’m wondering if you have a simple guide for this issue like the awesome one you made for flags (uhd, 4k, 3d, bluray, etc).

    • Hey efernandezjr,
      thank you for your kind words. I’m working on a tutorial explaining how Home Theater, tinyMediaManager and my Home Theater DB Tool work together. I hope I can release a first version by end of this weekend.

      • THAT’S AWESOME! I gotta tell you, it’s thanks to people like you who are willing to take their time and knowledge and share it with the user base to make this sort of thing work that have made the home theater community as special to me as it is. I’ve always been a movie and tv lover since I was a kid. It’s actually what I do for a living (I’m an editor). I love that we can do magical (and it absolutely is magic) things like storing our movies on a drive and with the help of others make it all work in a meaningful way. Many, many thanks again!
